After nine years together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally gotten married.
While their union was one of the most-anticipated in Hollywood history, the A-list couple managed to get hitched secretly in the France hamlet of Correns on Saturday, a spokesman for the pair says, according to The Associated Press.
The pair was spotted arriving with their children in tow at Nice airport in France on Friday via private jet and were believed to be heading to Provence's Chateau Miraval, the wine chateau in the village of Correns that they've been leasing since 2008,The Daily Mail reported.

The couple's six children also chipped in at the nuptials. The "Maleficent" star was walked down the aisle by eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10. Daughters Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, threw petals while Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, served as ring bearers, the spokesman said.
The brunette beauty reportedly accessorized with "a small gold locket with a photo of her mom (Marcheline Bertrand) inside it." It's said the locket once belonged to Jolie's late mother.
"Brad lifted (her veil) and gasped because she looked so stunning," the source continued.
"The boys all wore tiny matching cream linen suits which were just like Brad's (tux)," the insider added. "The girls had each chosen a dress to match their own individual style and they had them specially made."
Pitt, 50, wasted no time sporting his new accessory, which was supposedly "designed by their good friend Robert Procop." The "World War Z" star was spotted Thursday at a photocall for his upcomng film "Fury" at The Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset in England wearing his ring.
Jolie and Pitt began dating shortly after the "Moneyball" star ended his five-year marriage to Jennifer Aniston. They engaged in 2012 but indicated they'd wait to get married until gay marriage was legal.
"It's an exciting prospect, even though for us, we've gone further than that," Pitt told The AP in November 2012 about the idea of marrying Jolie. "But to concretize in that way, it actually means more to me than I thought it would. It means a lot to our kids."
Like Pitt, Jolie has also been previously married. In fact, she's been married twice, first to British actor Jonny Lee Miller for three years in the late '90s and then for three more years to Billy Bob Thornton. They divorced in 2003.
Early Thursday morning, "Inside Edition" spoke to the 75-year-old actor and asked about his daughter's wedding, which he said he didn' t know about.Missin in action from Saturday's ceremony was Jolie's father and only living parent, Jon Voight, who was in Los Angeles attending various Emmys events. He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a drama for "Ray Donovan."
"That's nice," he said when asked to comment.
The newlyweds' pal, George Clooney, was a bit more enthusiastic in his reaction to the news.
"How great is that?!" he told E! News. "I'm really happy for Brad and Angie and their whole family."
Brangelina will soon begin filming their first movie together since 2005's "Mr. & Mrs. Smith." Ironically, their next project, "By The Sea," which has been described as an "intimate character-driven drama" includes the pair getting married on-screen.
Working together is not the norm for the two highly sought after thespians. Still, they've managed to keep their love alive by engaging in deeply romantic gestures, like writing handwritten love letters to one another when they're not able to be together.
"We wrote handwritten letters to each other that were very connecting for us,"Jolie told Australia's TV Week magazine in July. "He was supportive from a distance, and it was quite romantic in a way."
Reps for the actors have yet to respond to the Daily News' request for comment.

While some people may gag at this news, I am really happy for them and their children. They are an admirable couple, not just in their successful careers, but also as parents and in their philanthropic advances for better lives for women and children across the globe. As I wrote a few years ago in my first movie review, Legends of The Fall, I had stated that I never cared for Brad Pitt, one of the reasons was that he left his former wife for Angelina Jolie. Now, that I look back, I'm somewhat ashamed, because I really didn't know anything about him or his family, and after I've read more about the Jolie-Pitt family as well as what an extraordinary woman Angelina Jolie is I've learned not to judge others by what everyone else may say about them. Also, it's good to be reading about a wedding and family in America, especially when both seem to be under constant attack today.
